With many government agencies implementing public access mandates over the past few years, journal publishers have developed new models for paying for the work of publication through Article Processing Charges (APCs).

On Monday, October 24, the University Libraries will host a joint event with the University of Pittsburgh Library System where those interested in publishing their research openly can hear more about the APC Funds of both institutions, what journals are eligible, and how one applies for financial support from the funds. A panel of past recipients will also be on hand discussing their experiences with publishing their research with unrestricted public access, and what recommendations or advice they have for future recipients of the fund.

Join us in IdeATe Studio A in the Hunt Library at CMU to hear more about the APC Fund, how it’s used, and what it means to publish openly. Food and refreshments will be provided.
